have visited, a 3.2 miles, a seven minute drive from sandy hook area the morning after sandy hook, thinking about that, i went to their website. their website is to have a roster of employees and they had picture and brief bioof each employee. and that was taken down. this was their neighborhood elementary school. the kids, the employees kits kids and acquaintances were probably there that day. and nobody has connected the dots yet. but in regards to the industry's intellectual hub, and i refuse to have that labeled as an oxymoron, every senior executive in the industry knows the people and that means that every senior executive in the industry is not all that many degrees of separation away from a kid that was at sandy hook elementary school that day. looking at geography in the structure of the industry, nothing has been said. i suspect in ways that i certainly do not know, this may be, yet again, a unique thing. i'm hoping there someone in the room who does have an in with the industry because i think there is an opportunity that we might be able to say this was in her your yar
happy during sandy. we are able to do things to raise through covenant house and the cooperation of extorting people that went into raised a lot of money, because it actually doesn't take that much money to give a person or doorway of hope. and the last thing i will say on this is, you know, for me i get very upset because when i first became mayor i had a metaphor that i clung to. i used to tell people such an optimistic hopeful person companies to tell people i'm a prisoner of hope. when we walked into city hall seven years ago there were so many challenges and i would try to gird my team up and say we are prisoners of hope. we do nothing but hope. now seven years later my metaphor seems to have changed because i see powerfully transforming things -- happening from the largest parks expansion in century from a down housing market, to double the production of affordable housing, first time in 60 years the populace is going down, it's going up. hotels in downtown and 40 years. so my metaphor has changed and i tell people i'm no longer a prisoner of hope. i am unhinged because i n
murdered, yet we all see what happened in that tragedy at the sandy hook elementary school why were people moved by those children being murdered? >> guest: people are as concerned about the death of a black child and as they are about the death of a black child that is one of the fundamental issues that we still address. we have had situations where assault weapons are used on a weekly basis in their urban areas and the victims are children. >> host: 500 people in 2012 for murder, black people were murdered on the south side of chicago and seems to matter more that they are killing each other in their children are dead and it doesn't seem to be the uproar in the country even in our community about it. >> guest: but that's where we are as a nation. most americans black-and-white and of all races understand the we are not the equal nation that we say we are. but there's still a reluctance to address that issue and understand that part of it comes from if you put one of the laws of school education is that white children are an inferior schools. >> host: there's action. >> guest: there's act
going to get tougher. a national health crisis and the sandy proved all too clear a couple weeks ago, global warming is beginning to affect us dramatically in our not talking about stopping it. obviously the less we have, the better we are all in the more we become an urban society, the more we can do to solve these problems that are at the center of our challenges as a nation. so that is what i wanted to tell you tonight. thank you for your attention i welcome questions. hot hot >> you mentioned anything sport and does rate. what are some of the things we could do better? >> i was waiting for the question. >> you guys are doing such a great job and i'm not an expert on portland. i'm an expert in limited cities that i've worked to. i do have the impression. i say this with great trepidation. i do have a concern for your advocacy for bicycles and construction for bicycles is another form of high engineering and the london streets are redesigned by specialists with a single-minded focus on bicycles that may be undermining the ability. i'll be very specific. when you remove parallel par
be monitoring, of course the economics comes to bear. we know about hurricane sandy, anybody has an estimate of what the drought of 2012 has cost us so far? the issue is within agriculture alone, the estimate from usda to date is almost $50 billion within agriculture alone. what ends up happening, and don and others could tell you from work done by the national drought mitigation center, is when we ask, well, where are those impacts coming from, the agricultural impacts constituted about 25% of the total number of of reported impacts that we had seen. water resources, energy, wildfire. and one of the things you order in the last discussion and in this one that is the underappreciated aspect of the impacts of drought and air ridty, the loss of ecosystem sources as they support and supply tourism, recreation, clean water and clear air. we do not have any sense of what the costs of those multiple impacts are. we know a bit about the insured impacts from agriculture, but so, therefore, what needs to be considered? the indicators, as margaret is saying, about how people are economically impacted,
